I know if you look up the rules they say “never wear tweed with flats or converse”. Maybe they don’t mention converse specifically but if flats are a no go they just may cringe at the thought of a pair of trusty ol’ chuck taylors paired with such an iconic piece. If there is one thing you know about me it’s that I believe rules were made to be broken. When done right I think converse compliment such a jacket quite well. I love pairing pieces in an unexpected way and what better way for this than with layers of casual jewelry, a simple tee, boyfriend jeans and my favorite sneakers. After all a closet staple like this deserves to be displayed even on days where you are doing nothing more than lounging around or running errands.
Side note: yes I know these pictures are extremely different than normal but I thought it fit the theme so well. If it’s a complete creative fail I promise I won’t “venture out” again;) and I will still love you for your honesty. Another side note: yes I am drinking good afternoon coffee out of my good morning mug, what’s a girl to do (Is it bad that I feel like I can’t get this point across without emoticons)!
